TM 11-259 Radio Set AN/PRT-1 1945-03-30.
"Radio Set AN/PRT-1 is an expendable barrage-type jammer for use against enemy radio communications. The radio set transmits continuous broad-band spark signals effective over a very wide frequency range. Two transmitters are carried on a standard Quartermaster packboard, three of which are supplied with each Radio Set. AN PRT-1 (fig. 1).
If the use of the packboard is not desirable, the transmitters may be carried by means of a shoulder sling supplied with each unit. Preset time operation is provided by a timer mechanism, or the units may be set to operate immediately after placement."
